Want to Buy

I’m sure this is a longshot….I found a single early 755A, the early version with the zinc silver colored finish. I’m looking for a second.

Mine came in the KS-12046 cabinet but I’d be happy just for the 755A.

Also looking for a single or a pair of the 8 inch version of the Altec 618 slant front cabinet.

Best,

Jonas

Nice find!! I'll keep an eye out for one if you'll watch for the 728B that I need... :)
 
Thanks! I was pretty happy to find it, wasn't very cheap, I've owned a few in the past but now it's time to revisit...

I'll keep my eyes peeled for that 728B!
 
I've seen some nice looking replica cabs on eBay but I assume you only want an original. I had someone build me a replica Altec 612 cab for a 605 build and it looks virtually identical to the original.

Best of luck with this. I'm jealous.

I remember a guy in Texas was making replica cabs, but I can't find them anymore. If anyone knows the sellers ebay name that would be great. I am debating making some my own as faithful as possible to the originals as possible.

I believe his ebay name is projectorcollector. That's the guy I was speaking with before I contracted with Joe Stewart of Toronto to build my 612 replicas.
 
Thanks! I’m looking for the Western Electric version if possible to make a good match. That one also has some condition issues but please keep ‘em coming!
